A tiny town with big tourist appeal, Pigeon Forge bills itself as the "Center of Fun in the Smokies." Just a short drive from the national park protecting the diverse plant and animal life of the Great Smoky Mountains, the town features numerous places to visit, such as bars, restaurants, cafes, theaters, and shops.
On the 24th (Sun), don't miss a visit to All Sauced Up # 2, have some family-friendly fun at SpeedZone Fun Park, then find something for the whole family at The Track Smoky Mountains, then have some family-friendly fun at Four Bandits Old Time Photo, and finally sample the tasty concoctions at Yee-Haw Brewing Co.. Here are some ideas for day two: look for gifts at Aunt Debbie's Country Store, identify plant and animal life at Sugarlands Valley Nature Trail, then trek along Rainbow Falls Trail, and finally admire the sheer force of Baskins Creek Falls.
